It Just Keeps Getting Better

I was trained in inner healing through the Unbound ministry and have seen a lot of fruit through it. I remember after the first couple of classes telling people in our carpool that I planned on staying with the Unbound process because I just thought it flowed well and...

An Instrument in God’s Hands

An Instrument in God’s Hands

This quarter gave me much more confidence to pray for others. In a healing service situation, I feel very confident. However at work or in the community, I never had the courage to step up and offer prayer. By not taking a risk, I wasn't growing in my healing...
